We support people with dementia in Scotland to make sure nobody faces dementia alone



Hi Everyone...Thanks for taking time to visit my JustGiving

page and reading about the adventure I embarked upon earlier

last year to raise funds for Alzheimer's Scotland and Oban

and Lorn Dementia Support Group and help the fight against this


Born in April 1944, I challenged myself to visit as many

Museums: Historic Environment Scotland sites: and National

Trust places in Scotland; during the year between April 2023 and

my 80TH BIRTHDAY in April 2024.

This tested my energy, planning ability and methods of travel

because my targets lay as far North, South, East,

West and in between as I could manage to reach.

My reasons are heartfelt; I too have lost precious people to this

disease and I am trying to raise money to help slow it down.

In April I researched the thirty-three local government counties in

Scotland for Museums, Historic Environment Scotland and

National Trust places:then using a map of Scotland considered

the personal achievability … and pressed the Green Light!

I have now completed the challenge with103 visits including East

Lothian, the Scottish borders, Orkney Islands, Outer Hebrides, Peterhead,

Inverness and many other Scottish cities and towns.

So far The National Museum of Flight, was memorably

impressive, Scapa Flow Museum, Orkney Islands most

emotive, The Riverside Museum of Transport in Glasgow stirred

up great memories while The Museum of Scottish Lighthouses in

Fraserburgh is awesome. I enjoyed a fantastic visit to The

National Football Stadium Museum at Hampden Park for publicity

to help further fundraising on behalf of Alzheimer's Scotland. Now

adding The Surgeons' Hall Museum in Edinburgh to "fascinating" and The

Museum of Scottish Fire Heritage, Edinburgh to First Class.

I am compiling a journal of my visits, on what was

an interesting, challenging and memorable

adventure in my 80th year... for a worthy cause.

Regards from Karen B.
